Cure JM is the global leader in juvenile myositis (JM) research. We are paving the way to better treatments for JM while improving the lives of families affected by the disease.
Juvenile myositis involves a run-away immune response where the body’s immune system attacks its own cells and tissues. With proper treatment and care, children can go on to live their best lives.
